With Puckered Lips … Sleepy Eyes


With Puckered Lips … Sleepy Eyes

Long hair spread out over the fluffy pillow

She stretched … woke up in a fog

Yes?  She questioned the presence she couldn’t see

She felt a cool hand brush hair back from her forehead

Her skin was very hot, feverish

Yes?  She said once again …

Mommy loves you, Baby

She heard the voice say

Mommy kissed her goodnight

The sick, little girl turned her head

Tried to see her mother to kiss her goodnight

She lifted her head with puckered lips … sleepy eyes

Goodnight Mommy … I love you

Mommy tucked the blanket around her ears

She felt safe, warm … knew everything was going to be all right
